On challenge The Bride - Requirement: crop photo to a SQUARE (13 comments in total)
In reply to:

Navathej K: May I know why the rule of square format is put in place ? any specific reason at all ?

I agree, but that's also what makes a challenge a challenge.

Last weeks was a dog challenge, and I think almost all of them looked great cropped square. This one is more of a challenge just to follow the square rule. I also run 2 sets of challenges , and the other has no rules at all :)

Yes, I want to see an effort to enter the challenge. Often, people read a challenge theme, and pull a "best" photo from years ago out of their library and enter. I hope with a request to frame as square, they will look harder at that library and think about how to re-create a composition. I think cropping photo's to specific geometry can make a big difference in how you see the end result. I hope people will enjoy the added requirement and think of it as part of the art, rather than just a rule.

Tom248: The beginning of 25 April GMT has come and gone, and can't enter!

I just added a photo. Maybe there was a problem yesterday. Try again - the challenge is open. IF it fails we need to contact the sit owner.

I haven't seen this before but I find it really stirs at my imagination of the world around these 2 tree tops. A very worthy entry in this challenge!

On challenge Cat (Entry must be cropped to a square format) (5 comments in total)

So, this filled up in 1 day, and every entry was correctly sized, and had a cat in the picture. I don't want to burden the voters with 200 cats to look at, so I am going to set up a second cat challenge that will run in 2 weeks. so, for those that missed this one, get your pictures ready for round 2.

On challenge Post-Processing Salvation - # 2 (7 comments in total)

Thank you for hosting this challenge. Although it did not attract a large # of entries, it gave me (viewers) a chance to really look at what people did. I learned something here.

On photo Eastern Montana in the Empty challenge (2 comments in total)

I had no idea what I'd see with this as the subject. I Was not disappointed. The variety was surprising and a few were worthy winners. This is quite nice Bob. I think the fact that the road doesn't even have lines painted just adds to the empty feel. Congratulations on winning this challenge.

On photo Garage Door in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture challenge (8 comments in total)

What I like: This is a thoughtful, well composed photo (rather than a snapshot).

What I don't like: There's nothing pulling you in, no specific focal point.

I suspect it would be more interesting at night with a street light focused on the white graffiti and the rest more in the shadows. Just a guess though as a way this subject could come more alive.
